Observation

A very popular question.  However, many of the candidates scored low marks because they could not articulate their points. This made their performance to be low. They were expected to explain the following among others:

  • many of the coastal states were converted into Christianity and as a   result, it became an important religion in the coastal states;
  • the missionaries built schools and many children had the opportunity of receiving western education;
  • many people were baptized and adopted European names;
  • some people were persuaded to abandon some of their traditional practices e.g. killing of twins;
  • some missionaries built health centres and introduced western medicine;
  • introduced monogamy and its attendant effects, etc.
